The official disclaimer: Unless tagged "original fiction" or otherwise indicated to be my intellectual property, I do not own the characters or series featured in stories or artwork here.

Archived on here is mostly fiction (fan- or otherwise); feel free to add aopt if you're interested in those bits of my life that don't involve writing. I do use this journal in my involvement in most LJ communities, as well as my interaction with the online community as a whole.

At some point I'm going to get all my fic organised. For now, let me direct to my tags, where you may find a modicum of organisation.

I realise that certain concepts and actions depicted in stories can trigger readers, or otherwise cause them great discomfort. If there's something you need to be warned about, please let me know about it here so that I can be better equipped to cater to your needs. The last thing I want to do is cause anyone unnecessary trauma.

Beyond writing, I also make icons, which are posted infrequently at my shared graphics community, iconsometry, and/or my graphics journal kilograph. I can be found on Dreamwidth as iambickilometer, and also on Twitter.

FandomsCollapse )

I am not always immediately able to read my flist. If something important has changed with you - say, you've switched accounts, moved to Dreamwidth, or acquired a Twitter - feel free to let me know here.

OF COURSE IT FOLLOWS THAT I FINALLY MANAGE TO WRITE FIC AND IT'S COMPLETE AND UTTER CRACK NONSENSE.

Title: Beauty Is Scalp-Deep
Fandom: X-Men: First Class
Warnings: Complete crack, blatant use of awful tropes, flagrant disregard for Charles Xavier's actual characterisation, and a really lacklustre ending
Summary: After a recent and jarring physical change, Charles cannot bear to show himself to the outside world. It's up to Erik to convince him that his new appearance is not the curse that it seems at first to be.

Beauty Is Scalp-DeepCollapse )

Has anyone written fic based on the Thor movie yet? Are there communities? Anything? I really want to get my fanboy on but searching hasn't yielded me any results yet. My Google-fu is weak, folks, help me!

(also if anyone has/knows of icons, this would also be handy, as I don't trust myself to make good ones.)

I will in turn post links to anything I happen to find.

edit: You folks have been most helpful! Here's what I've got so far:
norsekink is the obligatory kink meme. Expect to find me there in my free time.
- the one where Balder collects a rather unhinged Loki from SHIELD facilities, post-Avengers-movie speculation
- the one where Loki is hitting on Fandral for the lulz (by hummingbirdmoth, NSFW)
- the ones where Lex Luthor enters into an arrangement with Loki, and sometimes gods and mortals have more in common than either would expect.

It's Electrifying by [personal profile] waketosleep. Clint Barton is apparently an Avenger and a pretty good shot, but whatever, Darcy has a taser and no reluctance to use it. Clint is the damaged one if he finds that charming.
I believe the correct phrase for this fic is "HEARTS IN MY EYES".

So this is... not really a request post? Because what I'm looking for is inspiration for something longer, and I'll probably only go with one suggestion, but.

Is there anything people want to see me write? Any fandom I've ever been a part of. Prompts appreciated. (AU is more likely to ping my interest, but don't let that stop you from suggesting something else!)

If it's something you know I'm already working on, you can still suggest it... but unless I've well and truly forgotten it, I've probably glanced at it already in my search for something to work on and not really been motivated.

At this point what I'm trying to do is just write something and I have no ideas and it's driving me nuts. So basically, HELP PLEASE?

First I will say that I really enjoyed it and might be getting into the fandom -- we'll see. The intrigue is delicious, the visuals are stunning, and the characters are all (for the most part) really really interesting and sympathetic. I LOVE THE STARKS. I just love them. There are not enough words for how much I love this family and these kids and their antics. I am really excited to watch this show.

But.

I"m throwing a big huge TRIGGER WARNING on the whole show.Collapse )

Another question for the flist.

A friend and I were complaining about how we miss Kingdom Hearts so much and how we wish there had been better fandom, and then I said it would be a great challenge to have people write/art/vid for old fandoms. "A nostalgia meme!" she agreed. Which sounds like a GREAT idea to me, but would anyone else be interested?

I was planning just to host it here, since I doubt it'll get that big (but feel free to let me know if you think something else would work better). Format would be pretty loose -- it could be prompt-and-answer, or it could just be people linking back to things they post, or a mixture of the two. I won't impose any guidelines on how old fandoms should be -- if "nostalgia" is two years ago or twenty for you, it'd be fine.

So, suggestions? Interest? Anyone?

The incredible preromantics is putting on a National Poetry Month pan-fandom fic exchange. It's super low-key but it looks like it could be a lot of fun. The goal is to have at least one post every day of the month, so if you're interested you should check it out!

Hello various blogging sites, I am not dead! In case you were wondering. I have been pretty absent for a while but I am pleased to tell you that there is no good reason whatsoever (except that I haven't written anything worth posting, I guess).

But I have been writing some things, so in an effort to convince you that if you haven't left you shouldn't, I will tell you what they are!

And I will cut it for your convenience!Collapse )

Also, for your entertainment: what I did last night and this morning. (I'm on the left with the bad hair)
